Highly Anticipated Mystery Adventure Film Watchmen
Features New Music From My Chemical Romance
Original Score Album Features Music Composed By Tyler Bates

March 3, 2009 — Burbank, CA — Warner Sunset / Reprise Records released both the soundtrack and original score to the feature film Watchmen today, March 3rd. The highly anticipated feature film hits theaters this Friday, March 6th.

Music From The Motion Picture Watchmen, the film’s official soundtrack, includes My Chemical Romance’s powerful reinterpretation of Bob Dylan’s “Desolation Row,” recorded exclusively for the film. The soundtrack also features a collection of classic songs by such artists as Nat King Cole, Leonard Cohen, and Jimi Hendrix that, once heard in the context of the film, will never be thought of the same way again.

Watchmen Original Motion Picture Score features music by recording artist, composer, and music producer Tyler Bates, who was asked to score the film by Watchmen director Zack Snyder. Tyler, who also scored the Snyder-directed films 300 and Dawn of the Dead, has also scored the soundtracks to The Day the Earth Stood Still, Showtime’s Californication, Slither, Rob Zombie’s Halloween, and The Devil’s Rejects. He is known for his surprising juxtapositions of music styles and flair for delicate, atmospheric touches, as well as stressing emotional vibrancy over traditional formulas of music compositions. Bates has also been chosen to score the Watchmen’s DVD added story, “Tales From The Black Freighter.”

Music From The Motion Picture Watchmen and Watchmen Original Motion Picture Score are being released in multiple fan-friendly configurations: The physical CD, and a digital album are available on March 3rd, and a vinyl edition of the soundtrack will be released on March 17th.

Watchmen Singles Box Set will be released on March 24th. The box set contains seven 7-inch vinyl picture discs, one for each Watchmen, plus the original Silk Spectre. The picture discs come inside a hardbound book packaged in a special slipcase. Each picture disc has their image and unique saying. The Watchmen Singles Box Set will include My Chemical Romance’s cover of Bob Dylan’s “Desolation Row,” plus 13 hand-selected tracks from Tyler Bates’ Original Motion Picture Score.

The Watchmen Singles Box Set available exclusively at and is now available for pre-order.

A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, Watchmen is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” — which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union — moves closer to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the outlawed but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion — a disbanded group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers — Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity…but who is watching the Watchmen?

Watchmen is directed by Zack Snyder from a screenplay by David Hayter and Alex Tse, based on the graphic novel co-created by Dave Gibbons, published by DC Comics. The film is produced by Lawrence Gordon, Lloyd Levin, and Deborah Snyder. Herbert W. Gains and Thomas Tull are the executive producers, with Wes Coller serving as co-producer. The film stars Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Patrick Wilson.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Paramount Pictures present, in Association with Legendary Pictures, a Lawrence Gordon/Lloyd Levin Production, a Zack Snyder Film, Watchmen. Watchmen will be released nationwide on March 6, 2009. It will be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. Pictures and internationally by Paramount Pictures.

MCR’s Watchmen movie screening

Who watches the Watchmen…

posted by Ray on Feb 13, 2009 11:07am

We did! Went to a screening a few days ago at WB. The movie turned out great. Anyone who’s read the book knows how complex the plot is, so that in and of itself is a challenge, but really what makes the book great are the characters. Each of the Watchmen has multiple layers themselves.
Throughout the book you learn more and more about their motivations and how they ended up where they are. Its like the slow peeling of an onion, and getting this across in a film is a tough feat.

Zack and crew managed to do just that. The way they handled Rorschach and Manhattan felt the best to me, as these two characters I feel are the most interesting in the book. Rorschach is amazing because he is very one track. His sense of justice is absolute, and never falters from that. With Manhattan, you’re asked an important question. What if you had the power to save the world, but didn’t want to? You will feel sorry for this man with infinite powers, yet no desire to use them.

They also amped up the action sequences, which was a smart move. In the book, you get a sense that even though the Watchmen aren’t true “super-heroes” in the expected sense, they know how to fight. These fight scenes and the violence overall are brutal and bloody. I’m really looking forward to seeing the movie in a real theater when it comes out to hear the reactions from the audience on some of these shots.

I think you guys will really love the movie.

In other news, we’ve been writing for the past week. Things have been moving fast, and are feeling really good. I think we’ll soon be hitting our stride, and can’t wait to see what comes out of that.

Oh and check out Flower on PS3. If you ever feel the need to get away from the world, load up this game. Take to the winds and enjoy.
